Two days ago, the Internal Revenue Service said it believes the recent cyber-attack that allowed the stealing of tax returns of more than 100,000 people originated from Russia. The cybercriminals used personal data stolen from the agency to file $50 million in fraudulent ‪#‎taxreturns‬.

Experts estimate that ‪#‎cybercrime‬ could cost the world up to $575 billion per year. So what is the government doing to attack the problem?

Did you know that #SanAntonioZoo needs 2 million gallons of water a day for its animals, schools in the Tampa Bay Area of ‪#‎Florida‬ use 22,284 gallons of water each day, and the average American uses 176 gallons of water per day?! That’s a lot of water! So, what is happening to resolve the country’s ‪#‎water‬ needs?

Cooperative purchasing programs save time, money and effort because goods and services have already been vetted. That’s the reason public officials love them. They can make purchases quickly and without the hassle of launching a formal solicitation process.

This past week, the U.S. Army called for another round of Base Realignment and Closure, otherwise known as BRAC. More than 350‪#‎military‬ installations have already been closed. Who is next?

No community wants to be listed on the upcoming ‪#‎BRACreport‬, but the history of successful redevelopment efforts offers encouragement. Read on for more information.

In order to get the attention of Congress, many ‪#‎Texas‬ communities and public officials participated in a nationwide ‪#‎StandUp4Transportation‬ Rally recently. The short term fixes passed by Congress have left the nation's roads, highways, bridges and transit system in limbo. ‪#‎SU4T‬

I wonder how much more we can lower taxes before the high quality of our state and national infrastructure will start to decline!!!
I know that many legislatures have chosen the much more expensive toll road escape route so they can get reelected. Toll roads are the privatised version of public good. One mile on a toll road cost me three times the rate of the gas tax, AND I still pay thegas tax. What did I miss here? I know! I'm stupid!

We may worry about many things…but, the ‪#‎security‬ of our personal devices is not high on our list of concerns. Our concern about ‪#‎Internetsecurity‬ could change soon. Taxpayers are beginning to realize that public networks, if hacked, cause dangerous chaos and/or significant financial pain. So what are government officials doing to stop ‪#‎hackers‬ from gaining access to confidential ‪#‎information‬?

The Highway Trust Fund, was set to expire at the end of May, however motivated people throughout the country reached out to members of Congress to get it extended. Why is Congress stalling while the picture becomes bleaker each year?

Here’s an alarming statistic…in the United States, cars, trucks and school buses cross the nation’s 61,064 structurally compromised bridges 215 million times every day. How comforting is that?

What do ‪#‎SiliconValley‬, ‪#‎Austin‬, ‪#‎Boston‬ and ‪#‎NewYorkCity‬ have in common? They all provide “entrepreneurial ecosystems” for high-tech ‪#‎startup‬ firms.
